Cat Problems

Jory John, Lane Smith

What could a pampered house cat possibly have to complain about?   

Just like most cats, this cat lives an extremely comfortable life. But he has his problems, too…   

The sun spot he’s trying to bathe in just won’t stop moving. The nosy neighbour squirrel just can’t seem to mind its own business. And don’t even get him started on the hoover! It’s an absolute menace! Will this cat ever find the silver lining?   

From picture book superstars Jory John and Lane Smith, the creators of Penguin Problems and Giraffe Problems, comes a brand-new, hilarious collaboration sure to tickle every feline fan and owner!


This wonderful author–illustrator partnership has already given us two picture books featuring bad-tempered, cynical characters complaining about their lives: Penguin Problems and Giraffe Problems. The eponymous cat in Cat Problems suffers numerous exaggerated indignities that are equally hilarious: from being woken from a 19-hour nap to the kitten that conspires to sleep in all of cat’s favourite places. And what about that horrible monster – the vacuum cleaner? And why is there never any wet food? Dry food is just not good enough for this little lord. Not to mention the boredom of being indoors – it’s just hell being a cat! That is, until cat is given a lecture by a tiny little mouse about just how good its life really is. But will cat listen?

This is a beautifully illustrated, delightful picture book that we can all relate to, whether we have a cat or are just feeling a little frustrated and house-bound ourselves. A great, fun read-aloud for ages 3+.
